Thumbs up Re: hi im new here.

thatks for welcoming me.

okay here it is.
Price range: 500$ (I hope to get a deal for like 300$ used. I donít really have 500 bucks but I might be able to get it used.)

Size: thin and light to mainstream ( 14-15.5 inch.)

Location: I want to get it online from a Canadian or American vender

Brand: no Toshiba plz. I like asus and hp.

Tasks: lots of files need to be stored. Web browsing and 2d game making. Word processing and snappy streaming video. Most likely no 3d other that mine craft (not really graphics intensive) and some 2d gaming (mostly what I make but some online games too.) art programs like Photoshop are a must. Also video editing is probable.

Portable: I will need to move it but I wont take it for school every day so it only need to be slightly portable

Battery life: at least 5 hours but 7+ is ideal.

Operating system: windows 7 ideally. No apple or Linux please. Also no vista. I hate vista.

Screen: I donít care if its wide screen or not. (however I will take widescreen over standard but only if im not compromising anything else.)

Resolution: 1400x1050 (SXGA) or 1680x1050 (WSXGA) (I can compromise on this one.

Glossy or no: matte. (I can compromise here too).

Stylishness: I like it to be functional. But I want it in black or silver. Blue works too. Aluminium case is nice but not required. I need a good keyboard because I type a lot. (code monkey) also a touch pad supporting multi touch support is nice too. Preferably something minimalist that says I mean business.

Hard drive: 70+ GB

Optical drive: CDRW DVD-ROM

Ram: at least 3GB but preferably 4

USBís: at least 3 but 4 is better.

Pre installed programs: Microsoft office suite and internet explorer or Google chrome.. No bloat ware please. Most programs I use will be bought by me.

Upgradeable: I would like it to be easy to get in to the computer because I want to upgrade it in the future

Thank you for your time.
